If your chronic sinus problems, including nasal congestion do not improve through the avoidance of triggers, allergy treatments or medications, a balloon sinuplasty may be the best option. Balloon sinuplasty is a safe, effective procedure that offers a faster recovery compared to traditional methods of sinus surgery. This procedure can be performed in your specialist’s office.
As the video on this page shows, your specialist will a gently insert a small, flexible sinus balloon catheter into your clogged sinus passageways. The balloon will be inflated and as it enlarges, the balloon will push against the sinus passageways, helping to open up the sinuses and providing relief. Recovery is generally fast, and most patients find they can return to work and activities in about two days.
